Three Union Academy U-14 players are on the 58-player roster gathering in Carson, California for the first U.S. Boys' National Team Futures training camp.
Goalkeeper Carlos dos Santos (Philadelphia), defender Nykolas Sessock (Philadelphia) and forward Brendan Aaronson (Medford, N.J.) received call-ups from Director of Scouting Tony Lepore.
The camp will consist of players born in 2000 and 2001 and runs May 23-26 at the U.S. Soccer National Training Center.
All three players are on Top Drawer Soccer's top 150 player rankings for 2018. Aaronson, who has 4 goals in 17 games and 11 starts for the U-14 team this season, is No. 71. Carlos dos Santos, who has played 12 games and started 10 for the U-14s, is No. 86. Sessock, who has scored a pair of goals in 12 games and 11 starts for the U-14s, is ranked No. 104.
Of the 58 called into the camp, 52 are currently playing in the Development Academy. Twenty-four of those players are on MLS-affiliated teams. The U.S. U-14 team is coached by Brian Johnson.
Players in the camp will be "exposed to a hyper-focused curriculum formulated around highlighting each player’s unique talents while challenging them to improve decision making and speed of play, raise tactical awareness, and improve technical execution," according to a U.S. Soccer release.
